Can I Work At Home And Make Money?
That only requires a simple answer of “YES!”. The better question would be what is it you want to do at home and make really good money doing it?
In other words, finding something that eventually will replace or exceed your expectations once you put sweat equity into it. I could give you hundreds of ways to work at home and make money, but that only solves the here and now.
What happens in the future let’s say if you decide to babysit for a working mother or father? Eventually, that child will begin school and you are not going to be needed. Not only that this job really is not going to pay many bills for what you can earn.
We all have a bad habit that includes everyone reading this now! That is, we waste time watching television, playing on our telephones, or I am sure you can think of a few more ways you do this yourself.
Now how does this relate to working at home and making a good passive income? Quite frankly all that time you are wasting could be spent working on your own online business. You did read that correctly and it is not hard to do!
For those of you who find this interesting and want to know more please read my article completely. I will explain exactly why you should begin doing this today without delay.
How To Build My Own Online Business?
I really want to do this without making it sound difficult or impossible. Helping others achieve success with doing what I do gives me a feeling of elation that only those that help others know.
Let me help you by sending you to the only place you can find real step by step training with video, showing you exactly what to do and how to do it.
Before we begin with what all the FREE Starter Membership includes you have my assurance that this is absolutely free, with no obligation on your part. You do not even need a Credit Card to get started!
Most gurus and scammers out there always have you pay up front before you even have a clue what they are trying to sell you with all their hype. That is not going to happen here continue to read about what you are getting for FREE below.
The company that you are going to be Creating Your Free Starter Membership with is Wealthy Affiliate. But hold on the name of the company is a bit deceiving they teach much more than affiliate marketing.
But let’s have a look at the basics you are getting starting out. You will be receiving once your profile account is set up twenty (20) free lessons, two (2) free websites on the siterubix.com subdomain, and free hosting for the websites. There is more!

Live Chat 24/7 is available to Starter Members for only the first seven days of the membership I highly recommend using this tool to get any questions you would like answered about Wealthy Affiliate community.
When going through training we all have questions or get stuck. Live Chat is great for getting an answer to those questions in real time from experienced members of the community.
One-on-One Coaching for the first seven days is free as a mentor myself I will be more than happy to help you during this time with working on your website to answering any questions at all.
You might think well now that does not sound all too bad. But this is intense training is nothing like what you are thinking as the gurus advertise with their systems. This is not a get-rich-quick push-button system you will need to work!
Skeptical? I sure was, not knowing what to expect after I entered my email address on that form. But shocked is an understatement when I was on the website community of Wealthy Affiliate and I never gave them any personal information.
Shall we now get into what kind of tools are necessary for you to succeed in the online world?
What All Do I Need To Get Started?
It is obvious that you will need a computer or laptop to begin along with a good internet connection. You DO NOT NEED any great computer skills or technical experience at all. If you can read, write, and follow directions then you are good to go.
An office space is highly suggested where you can work peacefully concentrating on the training at hand, this includes the kitchen table. No worries if you miss something because you can watch it over and over again.
What I found beneficial when I was doing the training was to open two windows. In one would be the training video the other I would be following along doing the steps. The videos pause so you can keep up, making them easy to follow along.
A plan is another great thing to have in mind starting your own online business. When I, started I was unfamiliar with what a niche is. Simply put this is the audience you are going to be targeting helping them find solutions to problems.
In other words, over 4 Billion people search the internet daily looking for solutions to questions they have. This can be for a product or service that you know about.
If you can write high-quality keyword content creating trust about the product or service you are recommending. You will then rank high on the search engines with the proper keywords. Then the searchers will find you and are going to buy from you.
When visitors to your website buy the product or service from your website you will earn commissions. Over time these commissions start to add up quickly depending on how consistently you are posting to your website.
Back to tools required, a good keyword research tool is a must. With Wealthy Affiliate you have Jaaxy Lite included for FREE to do 30 keyword searches in the Starter Membership. This tool is so valuable I love using it to do searches.
You can upgrade the version of Jaaxy Lite to one of the pay versions, but as a Premium Member of Wealthy Affiliate, I find the Free version covers everything I need for now.
After you have started the training you will then begin to build the next thing on our list of items required to get started. A website which you will be building on the WordPress Website Builder is easy because they have themes ready for you to use.
Starter Members will have to select from 12 Free WordPress Themes to build their website. This means you do not need to know anything about coding and all the techie stuff required for building websites.
Content for your website will be created on the Site Content Platform. This is another super great tool to use it keeps track of word count, as a grammar checker, and spell checker. You can even use it to set specific goals you would like to reach.
I always recommend installing Grammarly with Chrome it finds more of the grammar mistakes and is FREE to use. It does not work on the Site Content Platform, but it does work in the WordPress edit so it double-checks your content basically.
The only other things that I can think of that you might want to have handy are pencils, pens, and a notebook. I use Micro soft Excel to set up my goals daily but there is a FREE version of Trello you can use that will do the same.
Notice all the tools that I recommend for you are FREE to use versions, yes, some of them have upgraded versions but honestly the FREE ones work just as well. Why spend extra when it is not necessary starting out?
Why Set Up Goals?
When you start out in the training, Kyle co-owner of Wealthy Affiliate, asks you what you have in mind as a goal that you would be happy with.
Everyone answers this in the form of a money goal. This is not a goal that you can control when you think about it, now is it? You need to set goals on the things that you do control, such as, your time, work, commitment, and dedication.
Do you know why affiliate marketing only works for some people and not others? Humans are programmed to want instant gratification in all we do. Waiting for results is not part of something we want to hear about we want it NOW!
Each person who starts out is fired up ready to work then when a few months go by with no results they become discouraged, disappointed, and quit even before they have gotten started.
Commitment to taking “baby steps” is key to becoming a big success in the online world. Think if people like Bill Gates or Larry Page and Sergey Brin had quit. Would they be where they are today?
You must take baby steps with affiliate marketing that is how you are going to reach those money goals that you put down when Kyle asked you what you would be happy making.
Many of the affiliate marketers inside the Wealthy Affiliate community have full-time jobs. After a couple of years working on their online business, giving up television and playing on their telephones, they were able to quit working those jobs.
Why? Because their online business was making them more money than their regular job paycheck. Why work when they could now concentrate on diversifying what they are doing online?
Learn the process from the experts, follow what they do, do what they do, you will become successful. Diversification will come later when you know the process then all you need to do is lather, rinse, repeat – BINGO more commissions 🙂
